Arrived in the Shire around 2013 with intentions to reconnect with country life and now happy to call home.  I believe Toodyay and the greater Avon Valley has a very bright future and the opportunity to help current and future residents through council decisions is important to me.

As a member of several local interest and sporting groups, i have an underlying commitment to community organisations and residents in general.
Working in a trade within the region I have met many locals from diverse backgrounds that have inspired me to nominate.
I stand for a progressive and compassionate community served by a transparent and
positive council.

Profile:
I have been a resident of Toodyay for 45 years, initially venturing as a High School maths and social science teacher. I am retired, married and with my husband, Rob have run a farming business.

I have three married children, who have settled with their families into varied rural life styles. When the children were young, I was the primary carer, but continued to study. I completed a Diploma in Multimedia, Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and Certificate IV in Small Business Management, which led to employment as a TAFE lecturer in Information Technology. I have also completed a Certificate in Settlement Procedures.

In the community, I have been a volunteer with St Johns, delivering first aid training and a Girl Guide leader. I have also been a member of the Theatre Group.

I see my role as a councillor as a representative of the community, facilitating open, transparent communication between the Council and the community. It also involves supporting local business, sustainable growth, promoting a rural lifestyle and protecting our environment.
